Hope everyone had a nice week. Mine was fast and furious. I submitted two TNNA class proposals for the January 2011/Long Beach, CA Market. The first canvas is from Zecca. The second canvas is from one of Melissa Shirley's new designers. TNNA said they would make their class decisions announcement around August 27. I'll be sure to let you know what they say. Fingers crossed.
Next on the agenda for painting the Merry Mobile was to add the various shades of gray, silver, and white. The effects are subtle on the computer; however, in person, there is a nice metallic shine on the counter top.
I did my best to try to create painted shadows and highlights. I also told myself the needlepoint will take everything to the next level. The final phase of painting will be to tackle the background. Hope my mojo stays with me. Fingers crossed. Thanks, Robin
